AMERICAN GUNSLINGERS Feature Film Announcement

As we approach the new year, AJ Epyx Productions will soon embark on our most ambitious project to date: AMERICAN GUNSLINGERS. This excitng western will be directed by Andre´ Joseph with a screenplay by Drew Henriksen, best known as “Talbot” in VENDETTA GAMES as well as the screenwriter/producer of the award-winning western short, POWER OF PRAYER. Originated from a story by Joseph, Henriksen, and VENDETTA GAMES’ Chris Corulla, the story follows two interracial brothers reuniting in the late 1800s to search for their father’s buried treasure while pursued by a corrupt town Marshall and his vicious bounty hunters. The screenplay was recently been accepted for competition into next year’s World Music & Independent Film Festival as well as the All Genre Screenplay Contest which has now made the screenplay available to order via Dizzy Emu Publishing in paperback and Kindle editions at Amazon.

For the latter competition, we need your support as the overall contest winner is the writer of the top-selling screenplay in each three month contest period. These writers receive a full Publish & Marketing package from Dizzy Emu Publishing, worth $499.00 – this includes building us a website and making a video trailer to help us promote the screenplay. All entrants in the contest receive their royalties in full, directly from Amazon. We also retain full control of their screenplay’s rights and pricing. All proceeds will go directly into the production of this film.

AMERICAN GUNSLINGERS is currently casting and in pre-production. Vintage locations are currently being sought out in Staten Island and Long Island, NY. We’ll be shooting a trailer this year to attract potential investors. Further details about the production and investor opportunities will be available in the coming months. Please contact us directly to ajepyx1@gmail.com for a prospectus.

Final Countdown on VENDETTA GAMES Indiegogo Campaign

In less than 39 hours as of this writing, we will be at the end of the VENDETTA GAMES Indiegogo campaign. First of all, I would like to thank everyone and anyone who contributed to, shared, or liked the campaign and this film project in particular. Even though we get to keep what we make with Indiegogo through flexible funding in contrast to Kickstarter, it’s obvious that we did not make our initial minimum goal. There’s a lot of factors behind that, but I’m not here to point fingers. A lot of people don’t realize how much work it takes to promote a campaign and to get others to believe in it enough to contribute. I’d say this whole summer has been a challenge in that respect.

In spite of where we are financially with the film, my team and I will continue to push production forward this coming fall and actively seek potential investors, sponsors, and donors. We may have to nickel and dime our way through this efforts as I have done in the past. Except this time, I have a lot more experience to know our limitations and how best to find creative solutions to make sure every penny goes up on the screen. It won’t be fun going in that direction; however, it’s moments like these that force you to become a natural leader when all the odds are stacked against you.

As we get near the end, I encourage anyone at this point to watch our pitch video, followed by the opening scene for the film:
